|Assessment for Students' Conceptual Readiness and Multiplicative Reasoning - Legnard, Erika|
This research thesis addressed the problem of how teachers can assess students' readiness to begin learning and progress through multiplicative reasoning. Addressing this problem is important, particularly because this type of reasoning serves as a conceptual foundation for higher-level mathematical topics, such as fractions, ratios, proportions, and algebra.
